Torvehallerne is a big indoor farmers market in Copenhagen. There are two parts; one with chocolate, herbs, cakes and coffee, and one with butchers, fish dealers and tapas. I enjoy just going through there every now and then, and I have a bunch of places I usually stop by. Here are my favorites:

Café Rosa serves Copenhagen’s finest Swedish cinnamon buns. Her small market stall looks like Pippi Longstocking’s house and all of her cakes are delicious.

The Coffee Collective makes Copenhagen’s best coffee, cappuccino and espresso. Trust me, it’s SO good.

Tante T is great if you want to buy a cup of tea to stay, or if you want to bring some home for later.

Tapa del Toro serves really delicious tapas. To stay or to go (I vote to stay – it’s so nice to sit there and eat).

Ma Poule is a French market stall, where you can buy all kinds of French delicacies. They are famous for their Poulet de Bresse and their special sandwich, which has won a price as Copenhagen’s best sandwich last year. I’ve had it many times, and agree 100%. It’s Copenhagen’s best sandwich. is a fish dealer. I recommend their “fish tapas”, where you can buy four or seven different types of prepared fish dishes and take with you home for dinner. It’s price worthy and really good.

Gorm’s makes pizza, and they are all a little bit better than many other pizzas you can get around town.
